If you download wifi analyzer app to your phone (assuming Android) you will see what channels they are transmitting on.

Re: BtWifi & Openzone

My question was a bit different. What i was asking for is if i have 5 neghbours in my area using bt broadband, when i scan for wi-fi networks i can see bt wifi with fon only as 1 name. does it means when i connect to wifi it will connect to all 5 neighbours?

You will only connect the same device to one of the BTWifi BSSIDs at a time (your device will usually connect to the one with the strongest wifi signal), so your device will not connect to all 5 at the same time. However if you are walking a distance from A to B which is covered by multiple routers/access points transmitting one of the BTWifi SSIDs then your device may hop between them.
